As part of the „Women in business“ conference, the Lider magazine traditionally introduced the list of 300 most powerful women in Croatian business
“For years Ljerka Puljić is the most powerful woman in Croatian business, so we have come to an agreement with her to keep her out of the competition and present her with a special recognition for the tenth anniversary of leading our list” – highlighted Manuela Tašler, deputy chief editor of Lider at the very beginning of the ceremony.
So a special acknowledgement was given to Ljerka Puljić, Member of the Agrokor Supervisory Board after ten years of being the most powerful woman in Croatian business. On this occasion she said: “I would like to commend this initiative by Lider weekly magazine as it serves as positive affirmation of women in business and as an recognition, but also as a way to identify the ones who are giving everything to work and the ones who are successful in this. I wish that the future winners of this award think of it as an incentive to their work and a recognition that they have earned.” – said Puljić who also became president of the organization board for the “Women in business” conference.
